Release fee

It is reported by the Daily Star that Munir is a player under consideration from Arsene Wenger, and it would take an offer of £10 million to activate the 19-year-old’s release fee and, thus, bring him to the Emirates Stadium.

Arsenal had been linked with a move for the young forward in the final days of the summer transfer window as Wenger pursued goalscoring reinforcements, but it was Danny Welbeck who ultimately made the move to north London.

This failure to recruit Munir had appeared an opportunity missed for Arsenal with Barcelona now seemingly set to offer the youngster a more lucrative contract with significantly increased buyout clause, but the Daily Star see it differently.

Rapid rise

Munir has enjoyed a rapid rise in recent weeks after initially being added to the Barcelona first-team by Luis Enrique during pre-season. Having impressed during these outings, Munir was afforded a debut in La Liga, during which he scored against Elche.

He was then a surprise inclusion in the Spain squad after injury to Diego Costa and made his international bow in the 5-1 victory against Macedonia.
